Nominate a community asset

The community right to bid allows voluntary and community organisations to nominate privately and publicly owned assets for inclusion on a register of assets of community value.

We can only consider nominations from certain organisations. These are:

  • Parish and town councils.
  • Unincorporated bodies – with at least 21 individual members who appear on the council’s electoral roll.
  • Neighbourhood forums – as described in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

The following categories of Community Interest Groups (CIGS) with a local connection:

  • A charity.
  • A community interest company.
  • A company limited by guarantee that is non-profit distributing (in this context non-profit distributing means that any surplus is not distributed to its members, but is wholly or partly applied to the district council's area, or to a neighbouring local authority area).
  • An industrial and provident society that is non-profit distributing.
